Woody Christmas

Greetings! This week the Stampendous team is featuring projects with "Trees." Christmas trees, spooky trees, stenciled trees, etc. For my project today, I decided to use one of my favorite Christmas images from the July catalog, Woody Christmas. Now, I'm a fake tree kinda gal, but there's something special about the way this old woody has been decorated that makes me excited for Christmas. My full tutorial is below.

Directions:
1. Stamp the image on to Mixed Media Paper using VersaFine ink.

2. Color the image using the Zig Clean Color Markers listed. Use a water brush as needed.

3. Using the VersaMarker, apply dots to the ornaments on the wreath and garland and heat emboss with Gold Tinsel.

4. Die cut the colored image with the Large "P" Fitted Frame.

5. Ink the edges of the die cut image with Summer Sky Memento.

6. Die cut a piece of Evergreen Cardstock using the Small "R" Fitted Frame.

7. Create the card base out of Kraft Cardstock, cut to the size of 5 1/2" x 8."

8. Using a sponge dauber, ink the edges of the card base in a circular motion, beginning off the edge of the card and working in, with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink.

9. Using the Rich Cocoa Ink again, apply color directly from the pad to the very edge of the card base, keeping the line thin.

10. Adhere the two die cut layers to the card base.

This is colored so realistically that I can almost smell the pine scent and feel the metal of the car! You did a pine 🌲 and dandy job on this lovely card! TFS!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
